Sharon is originally from Trinidad, West Indies, and moved to Toronto, Ontario, Canada as a young child where she received her formal education and work experience. She worked as Medical Administrator for 40 years and found it to be a very rewarding career. She is also a mom to her son Andrew. Sharon was born into a dysfunctional family. She didn’t realize
this until life brought her to the edge of no return. She found herself living a life filled with depression, anxiety, fear, abuse,
and losing the most important person in her life, her son. She had already lost herself. Sharon went to therapy and after many years of support and meditation, she was able to free herself from the self-inflicted pain of not knowing any better.
Sharon’s life changed when she met her meditation teacher. Meditation was a way to be inside her mind, trying to be still. Meditation and stillness brought her to the knowledge of who she is. Sharon is first and foremost a devotee of Lord Krishna. She is pure, free, and will forever have love for herself and everyone and everything in this universe. Meditation has been the vehicle to self-love and self-realization. It has made her a purposeful teacher who encourages others to find self-love and self-realization through meditation.
When you meditate you open your being to who you are and why you are here. The silence brings clarity and focus. Each obstacle you encounter in meditation is a lesson on who and what you need to overcome to find yourself. Obstacles are present in our everyday life through our thoughts, including past and future mind wanderings. Learning to focus on your breath in any situation brings you back to the present moment. It’s helpful to cultivate a habit of meditating twice a day.
Her approach to meditation is gentle and slow (no need to rush). We sit, place our intentions on what we need to
focus on and breathe. Sitting in the stillness of the practice is the most exhilarating experience you can have.
Every time you meditate, the experience is different because every day we grow. We are never in the same place
as we were a minute ago.
“Every breath is a second chance.” Use that second chance to better your experience in our universe.
